The pediatric oncology team has extensive experience in the treatment of children with cancer and cooperates with other specialties in the center including surgeons, radiologists, and radiation oncologists, among others. The department also provides a range of supportive services including pain management, play therapy, and psychological support.
The team regularly meets with oncologists at St. Jude hospital in Memphis, TN and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, two of the top children’s hospitals in North America.
We receive children and adolescents up to the age of 18. We are equipped with:
- 38 inpatient beds, 14 of which are equipped with micro-filters to remove small air particles that may carry germs to patients who have received intensive treatment
- Two playrooms
- 9 private, fully-equipped intensive care unit rooms
- The subspecialties in the department include:

Located in the 7th floor of the Khalifa Building, the pediatric outpatient clinics are designed to make children happy from the first moment they enter the door. The “cave of heroes” with a small theater and an equipped playroom is our patients’ favorite place. We try to provide as many services as possible through the clinics, including medical procedures (such as bone marrow biopsies (under sedation) and chemotherapy infusion (see below)), consultations with the oncology clinics, subspecialty clinics, social worker and psychological support.
The outpatient chemotherapy unit can accommodate 10 patients receiving long infusions for a duration of one to 10 hours. Subject to the physician’s discretion, it is possible for some patients to receive chemotherapy treatment at home.
